Maharishi Corporate Development Programs

The Transcendental Meditation® Technique

The key technology of Maharishi Corporate Development Program is Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation (TM) - a simple, natural, effortless procedure practiced for 15-20 minutes in the morning and evening while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. As the body becomes deeply rested and relaxed, the mind transcends all mental activity to experience the simplest form of awareness, Transcendental Consciousness or pure consciousness, the mind's full creative potential, the inner Self.


The experience of Transcendental Consciousness develops one's latent creative potential while dissolving accumulated stress and fatigue through the deep rest gained during the practice. This experience is profoundly refreshing and revitalizing to both mind and body and enlivens within the individual's awareness increased creativity, dynamism, orderliness, and organizing power. Through the resulting development of mind and improvement in health, the individual enjoys increasing success and satisfaction in life.


Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation has profited thousands of companies worldwide during the past 50 years. It involves no concentration and does not require any change in lifestyle or beliefs. More than six million people of all religions, cultures, and educational backgrounds have learned this scientific procedure. Its comprehensive benefits are documented by 600 scientific studies conducted at 215 universities and research institutes in 33 countries.
